Andy Reid decides to take a knee, an artificial one
Chiefs coach Andy Reid has a knee. A new one, specifically.
Reid’s never one to talk much about injuries, but it was hard to avoid the topic when he took to the podium with a cane yesterday at the NFL Scouting Combine.
“All right, so we’ve only got one injury to talk about,” Reid said with a laugh, via Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star.
Reid had a knee replacement surgery after the season, which kept him from the Senior Bowl while he recovered.
“I had a little surgery done, a knee replacement,” Reid said. “Yeah, I’m gonna be ready to go [for the season]. I won’t be starting on PUP.”
The fact he’s up and about now is the good news, and by revealing it to reporters, he doesn’t have to worry about the league delving into his injury reports.
